Restriction On Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2002/95/EC
What is RoHS?
The European Union has mandated that high environmental standards be met in the design and
manufacture of electronic and electrical products sold in Europe, to reduce hazardous substances
from entering the environment. The “Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)” prescribes the maximum trace levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and flame
retardants PBB and PBDE that may be contained in a product. Only products meeting these high
environmental standards may be “placed on the market” in EU member states after July 1, 2006.
RoHS Logo
Although there is no legal requirement to mark RoHS-compliant products, Psion Teklogix Inc. indicates its compliance with the directive as follows:
The RoHS logo located either on the back of the product or underneath the battery in the battery
compartment (or on a related accessory such as the charger or docking station) signifies that the
product is RoHS-compliant as per the EU directive. Other than as noted below, a Psion Teklogix
product that does not have an accompanying RoHS logo signifies that it was placed on the EU
market prior to July 1, 2006, and is thereby exempt from the directive.
Note: Not all accessories or peripherals will have a RoHS logo due to physical space limitations
or as a result of their exempt status.
Disclaimer
Every effort has been made to make this material complete, accurate, and up-to-date. In addition,
changes are periodically added to the information herein; these changes will be incorporated into
new editions of the publication.
Psion Teklogix Inc. reserves the right to make improvements and/or changes in the product(s)
and/or the program(s) described in this document without notice, and shall not be responsible for

About the NEO Hand-Held Computer
1.5
About the NEO Hand-Held Computer
The NEO is a versatile, light-weight hand-held computer for use in light industrial environments. It comes in either “Connected” (with 802.11 Wi-Fi connectivity) or “Batch” variants
(without 802.11 Wi-Fi connectivity). The operating system can be either Windows Mobile
6.1 Classic, or Windows CE 5.0 (Professional for Connected variants, Core for Batch
variants).
For more details on the variants and options available for each, see Section 2.2 on page 9.
1.6
Developing Add-Ons for the NEO
The expansion port of the NEO is designed with two basic classes of expansion in mind.
The first is a simple trigger. This has no active electronics and is actuated by a SPST switch
closure, such as in the PX3035 pistol grip.
The second class of expansion devices does contain electronics and is intended for RFID
readers and other possible add-on devices. Communication between the host unit and addon devices will be done using USB signalling. Since the power requirement for the add-on
devices is not yet determined, in order to reserve the most flexibility the applied power
supply is derived directly from the unregulated battery, and can be switched on and off
through software.

Scanner Variants
The NEO hand-held computer comes standard with no internal scanner, but can be ordered
with either a laser scanner, or a 1D or 2D imager for reading bar codes. There is a housing
that protrudes between the top anchor points on the unit’s lower casing where an internal
scanner is installed, if required. If no scanner is installed, the same lower casing is used, but
the scanner beam aperture will be fitted with an opaque black cover.
When designing add-on devices, be sure to take into account the dimensions of this scanner
housing, and ensure that the add-on device does not block the scanner beam aperture.

Battery & Power Management
The NEO is powered by a 3300 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack, and can also be
connected to an external power source using a docking station or AC wall adaptor. When the
NEO is connected to an external power source, the battery pack also charges.
When the battery output drops below 3.1 V, the hand-held will go into suspend mode to
preserve information in volatile memory until the battery is recharged or replaced with a
charged battery. If the battery output drops below 1.6 V, the hand-held will shut down
completely, and any information in volatile memory will be lost.
Use only power sources recommended or sold by Psion Teklogix for the NEO.

Maintaining the NEO IP and Drop-Test Ratings
2.5
Maintaining the NEO IP and Drop-Test Ratings
NEO has been designed and tested to meet IP54 and a 4´ drop rating to polished concrete (a
total of 26 drops to include all corners, edges and faces). In some environments, it may be
beneficial to use the Protective Rubber Boot (PX3062) to extend the product’s durability.
Developers should ensure that any add-on peripherals are designed to achieve the required
IP rating necessary for the intended usage environment, and to match the drop-test rating of
the NEO alone.
Note: The Expansion Connector Cover on the rear of the product is not required to achieve
the IP54 rating.

Mechanical Description of the NEO Case and Anchor Points
The lower case of the NEO is made of injection-moulded Lexan EXL 9134 polycarbonate
plastic, colour 7B5003 grey (as defined by Sabic/GE). The plastic texture is VDI 27.
Devices can be anchored to four threaded inserts (insert size M2 x 4), or snapped into place
using the mounting slots located forward (2) and rear (1) on the unit. Exact locations and dimensions of the mounting points, and their positions in relation to the expansion port
connector pads, can be found in the CAD file neo_housing_and_bracket_asm.igs.

2.7.1
NEO Expansion Port Appearance
The NEO expansion port is on the back of the unit above the battery compartment, and is
normally protected by a press-in rubber cover. The cover should be left in place if the expansion port is not in use.
Removing the cover reveals the expansion port, the two lower threaded anchor points, and
the lower mounting slot. The expansion port comprises 16 small contact pads, and 2 larger
contact pads. The pads are slightly recessed behind a black Mylar mask, which may need to
be removed to ensure a proper connection (see Section 2.7.2 on page 14).
Figure 2.2 NEO Expansion Port
For detailed pinout information on these pads, see Section 2.7.4 on page 18.
2.7.2
Mechanical Description of the NEO Expansion Port
Electrical connection to the pins of the expansion port is made via exposed gold-plated pads.
It is expected that connection between the port and the attached device will be made using
sprung gold-plated fingers.
The recommended connector for attaching to the expansion port is a 16-pin connector from
Hirose (HRS): product number DF26A1.2-16CP-1.1V(51), part number CL661-0003-8-51.
To ensure proper connection with the expansion port contact pads, it may be necessary to
remove the black Mylar® overlay that surrounds the expansion port. Remove the overlay by
inserting a small flathead screwdriver between the overlay and the case and carefully lifting
it off.

Ensure that current is equally shared between the common pins for ground and battery.
Design such that shock or vibration is not likely to force a disconnection of the
DETECT pins.
Ensure that connector pins are not likely to catch on the edges of the plastic mask during
mounting or dismounting.
NEO Expansion Port Theory of Operation
The NEO expansion interface contains a USB host interface, a trigger input, a detect input,
and a software-switched battery output.
The USB host interface can be used as the interface to USB devices. The USB power must
be provided by the expansion device, by regulating the switched battery output. The
Docking and Tether Port Service (DTS) enables the USB interface when an expansion
device is detected.
Psion Teklogix NEO HDK User Manual
15
Chapter 2: Hardware Information
NEO Expansion Port Theory of Operation
The TRIGGER input signal is used to activate the built-in data capture scanner.
The DETECT input signal is sampled to detect an attached expansion device. An expansion
module must pull the DETECT input low to indicate that it is attached. When an expansion
device is detected, the PCon (peripheral controller) will allow the output power to be enabled. If the DETECT input goes high at any time, the PCon shuts off the output power,
which cannot be reapplied until the attached device is detected again.
The NEO expansion port is designed with two basic classes of expansion in mind: Trigger
operation and USB operation.
Trigger Operation
Trigger operation expansion devices provide a simple trigger to the NEO. These devices
have no active electronics and involve a trigger switch.
When the user actuates the trigger, a PCon signal (EXP_~TRIG) is pulled to DGND. By default, and if a scanner is installed, the NEO begins scanning for a bar code. Software in the
NEO provides the necessary de-bounce conditioning of the trigger signal on this input. The
default trigger mapping can be configured through the Manage Triggers applet in the NEO
Control Panel. Alternatively, the trigger mapping can be removed and the developer can use
it for his own purposes through the Trigger namespace in the Psion Teklogix Mobile
Devices SDK, available for download on the Psion Teklogix community website
(http://community.psionteklogix.com).
USB Operation
USB operation expansion devices contain electronics and are intended for RFID readers and
other active devices.
Communication between the host unit and add-on devices is done using USB signaling.
Since the power requirement for the add-on devices is not yet determined, the expansion device’s power supply is designed to derive from the VCC_BATT, rather than 5V for USB.
This provides the most flexibility. The power can be turned on/off by the NEO PCon, as
long as the attached device is detected.
The voltage range is between 2.7 V and 5 V; the add-on device should condition its input
power to handle the input voltage range while still maintaining proper output
voltage/current.
The switched power at the expansion connector is specified at a nominal 1000 mA. The
current limit is set by a resistor on the NEO main logic board.
16
Psion Teklogix NEO HDK User Manual
Chapter 2: Hardware Information
NEO Expansion Port Theory of Operation
This current should be considered as peak and current use at this level should be restricted to
100 ms duration with a repetition rate greater than 5 seconds. The average current drawn
through this interface should be 500 mA or less.
Reliable connections are necessary to provide power to the expansion module. It is expected
that the connector surface will be cleaned before installation and sealed when in use. This
will ensure that the multiple VCC and ground contacts effectively share the current.
When the USB-based device is attached to the expansion port it will be detected by a polling
process running on the PCon. To detect the presence of expansion hardware, the PCon first
asserts the pull-up resistor (P1.4), then reads the state of the EXP_DETECT signal (P1.3). A
low state indicates that hardware is attached. When no devices are present, PCon will not
turn on power to the expansion port. When a device is present, PCon will allow power to be
turned on to the expansion port and will continue to monitor for device presence.
Once powered, the expansion device establishes a connection over USB and communicates
its type, revision, etc. over USB.
Should a connected expansion device be detected as not present, power will be removed
from the interface. For safety reasons, software prevents re-application of power until the
device is detected once more.
When the NEO is docked, power to the expansion port is removed. Power can optionally be
re-applied once the hand-held is removed from the dock, unless the expansion device has
been detected as not present.
Note: When using the PX3004 Quad charging station, the available current per charger
slot is insufficient to allow the NEO to be turned on, to power the expansion slot,
and to charge the battery, all at the same time.

neo_expansion_PAD_DETAILS.pdf – 2D drawing showing the precise locations of
the device anchor points and connection pads
• NeoHDKLibrary.zip – C++ header and library files for device control programming
The 3D CAD drawing (IGES format) provides the physical shape of the NEO back cover
and the anchor points where add-on devices can be attached. There are four threaded inserts
on the underside of the unit that serve as anchor points for screw-on devices, as well as three
recesses to accommodate snap-on devices. A close-fitting add-on device can be designed
using this information.
The location and dimensions of the two large connection pads of the expansion port are also
found in the 3D CAD drawing.

•
The 2D drawing (PDF format) gives precise locations and distances between the anchor
points on the back of the NEO, as well as the location and layout of the 16 small electrical
connection pads of the expansion port.
The HDK library file contains the C++ .hpp and .lib files necessary to write software controlling power to the expansion port. See Section 3.6: “NEO HDK API Reference” for more
information on using these files.
3.2
NEO Expansion Port Power Control
The NEO peripheral controller (PCon) implements four power control states for the expansion port power. They are:
•
•
Off: Power is turned off when this command is received.
On: Power is turned on when this command is received, and will remain on, even when
the hand-held is in suspend.
• On with auto off: Power is turned on when this command is received, and turned off
when the hand-held suspends. The application is responsible for turning it back on after
the hand-held resumes.
• Auto on/off: PCon turns the power on to the expansion port before booting/resuming
the main processor, and turns it off when suspending.
There are two methods for managing the power output on the expansion interface: the
application can allow the DTS (Docking and Tether Port Service) to manage the power,
or the power can be managed directly through API function calls.

NEO Windows-Resident USB Drivers
NEO comes in two classes of hardware configuration: connected and unconnected (or
“batch”). Connected versions of the NEO run Windows CE 5.0 Pro as the operating system,
while the unconnected versions run Windows CE 5.0 Core. Both operating systems include
drivers for operating USB devices through the USB interfaces on the device.
The docking interface on the base of the NEO has pins dedicated to USB communication,
and can be used as either a USB host or USB device, via a partial USB On-the-Go interface
(USB OTG). However, the USB interface pins on the expansion port can be used only as a
USB host connection.
Without adding new drivers, both external USB host ports can be used to support external
keyboards, bar code scanners, the Psion Teklogix USB-to-Serial adaptor, the Psion Teklogix
USB-to-Ethernet adaptor, and USB memory keys. There is no support for a USB mouse,
modem or printer.

NEO HDK API Reference
Getting Started
The NEO HDK software is composed of a static library (NEOHdkLibrary.lib) and a C++
header file (PsionTeklogixNeoHDK.hpp). No other module/file/DLL need be deployed to
the device to implement functions specific to the NEO HDK.
Compiler Compatibility
The NEO HDK software components were compiled using Visual Studio 2005, but are
compatible with Visual Studio 2008 (no cross CRT issues). However, they are not
backwards-compatible with Microsoft’s eMbedded Visual Tools suite.
API Documentation
Descriptions of the APIs exposed by the NEO HDK are described in detail in the
PsionTeklogixNeoHDK.hpp header file in standard C/C++ comment format.
Limitations and Pitfalls
In order to use the SetPowerState function on a device that is newly attached to the expansion port, the DETECT pin must be grounded.
